Happily Loving Myself
I just love positive people. Being around them is always a blast! I've been watching Steve Harvey videos all night, and I'll have to say, I GOT MY LIFE! Steve Harvey is so real, down-to-earth, and he is always trying to make himself better. I have really been working on myself lately, and I've come so far! I made a video about a month ago for Torrid, because I wanted to be the face of torrid. You could see low self-esteem all over me, but it was the real me. I had so many takes of that one 1 minute 30 second video, and all of the videos were so fake. I decided to show the real me, the under confident, self-conscious girl that didn't speak well in front of cameras, let alone an audience. Since then, I've made 3 YouTube videos, colored my hair, and started speaking up. I am so far from my ultimate goal, but I've come so far in this month. I've always talked about taking risks, but now I'm taking them. I feel happy with me! I love me! This isn't a put-on fake type ordeal, this is truly felt from the inside out. I'm not relying on what people say to me to make me feel validated. It is so wonderful to be encouraged by people for stepping out of my comfort zone. I'm so thankful for people like Steve Harvey, Andrea Lewis, Lily Sweetz, and so many more that are just beautiful wonderful people who love themselves. I'm also thankful for the people in my life like Courtney (LuLuChris58), Keonna, and so many more people that have believed in me! And a special thanks to my sister Jai and her ambitious self! I am amazed by how far I've come! I am so thankful! God is awesome, and He has never left my side through this journey! I am truly blessed!
